ANNUAL REPORT 



OF tiii: 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

FOR THE YEAR L875-6. 






Fellow Citizen^ : — In presenting their annual report of the 
condition raid progress of the schools during the school year, near- 
ly closed, your committee feel that they have a pleasant task to 
perform. 

We have been fortunate in securing tire services of thoroughly 
competent and faithful teachers, and the general harmony, which 
has prevailed between teachers and pupils, has rendered your 
schools of more than ordinary value, 

Our schools should be continually progressing towards a hi« 
standard of character and attainment, [f this is not the ease, it 
certainly should be. The regular and continued advancement of 
the race in knowledge, and in its applications, and in the methods 
of its acquirement and communication, entitle us I i expect that 
this advancement should be made manifest in OUT 
the elementary principles here acquired, all learning is founded, 
and to each succeeding generation these principles are presented 
in a new and clearer light. The road to learning which our 
fathers traveled was a roimli and stony one. Hard facts and hard 
knocks were the staple and only products of the school-room. It 
will be said that these schools produced many good scholar-, I lit 
it should be said that they became such in spite of, rather than in 
consequence of, such a system. 

The prime object to be obtained by the teacher is to interest the 
school in its legitimate and proper work, and one potent auxiliary 
for the accomplishment of this object is for the child to know and 
feel that his parents are interested in his advancement, and to

There is a bill of $41 charged to this town by the city of 
Springfield for aid furnished a family by the name of Lucius 
and Saltus. The reason why the Overseers have not paid the 
bill is because we think Jeremiah Lucius never had a settle- 
ment in this town. Springfield has brought suit to recover 
said bill. 

In regard to the Parks case we would say that the Selectmen 
have commenced a suit against the town of Warren to recover 
a bill of S3 1 5.1*8, paid by the town of Dana for support of the 
Parks family.

THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE, 

OF THE TOWN OF DANA, 
FOR THE YEAR ENDING FEBRUARY 20th, 1885. 



To the Citizens oi Dana : 

We present our annual report of the progress, and present con- 
dition of the school-. 

Having made a careful study oi the Deeds and possibilities of 
improvement in tin- dilferent schools, we haw endeavored to sup- 
ply their want-, and assist tip- teachers in their efforts to improve 
the condition of their respective Bchools. After ■ careful review 
of the work done (luring the past year. we are confident the result 
as a whole, will compare favorably with any equal period of time 
during which uc have been connected with the schools. 

Where the result has tailed to he wholly satisfactory, oj.cn dis- 
paragement of the teacher, indifference with regard to punctuality 
of attendance, and a low estimate of the value of education, have 

home their well known fruits of disobedience ami it- punMimeiil. 

idleness, absence and its consequent loss of interest, and oj tin 

natural result complaints from tin- parents <»t the delinquent chil- 
dren that the teacher is not the right one for tie- place. We tru»t 

that those who feel that their children have not made so good pro- 
gress as IS desirable will calmlj ami rationally review the work of 
the past year and see if by word or act of their-, the children have 

heen encouraged to go forward in the path that leads to wisdom. 

knowledge, and virtue; if not, then a grave responsible rests with 
them to help rouse the ambition that indolence and ill-doing ha- well 

nigh destroyed, and cause the children to understand that they are 
partly responsible lor their own success or failure.

the children, in interest of parents, and in that charity which en- 
ables all to overlook some Blight imperfections where right motives 
lead to good results. 



rn OF schools. 



The Village, Plain, and Central schools have had twenty-nine 
weeks, the North 20 and the Souih 28. The latter closed before 
it could be known that an} 7 school in town would have a winter 
term of nine weeks.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



REVIEW CF SCHOOLS. 



CENTRAL SCHOOL. 

This school was taught the past year by Miss Alice P. Fay. 
Great credit is due to her for her faithfulness in the discharge of 
her arduous duties. The weather, bad traveling and sickness, to- 
gether with the indifference of a few parents rendered the attend- 
ance during the Winter term very unsatisfactory. Still good re- 
sults proved the thoroughness of instruction, and the school is left 
in unusually good condition. Many parents and friends attended 
the closing examination. 



VILLAGE SCHOOLS 



These schools under their former teachers have made steady pro- 
gress during the year. An unabated interest was proved by the 
constant attendance of the pupils, and the oumbei of \ Mtors dur- 
ing, and at the close of the several terms. 



PLAIN SCHOOL. 

This school was again taught by Mrs. Doubleday. Her work was 
satisfactory to the Committee. It would be difficult to find another 
teacher willing and able to do so well by this school. In this school 
as well as at the Central the average attendance has had an unfa- 
vorable effect. 



SOFTOOL HKPORT. 11 



SOUTH SCHOOL. 

Under tin- instruction of Mrs. Smith this school has continued in 

a prosperous condition. Few schools can show better results. 
Credit is due to all parties interested. 



NORTE school. 

This school, though very small, has again been successfully 
taught by Miss Nellie Doubleday. That she has succeeded in 
keeping up the interest in so small a school proves her ability and 
faithfulness.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



BOOKS FURNISHED BY THE TOWN. 

During the year books and other school supplies, required by 
law, have been furnished at an expense to the town of $144.83. 

In supplying books, we have endeavored to form classes, and 
supply them in such manner as would insure the best results under 
the new law, and yet make the cost as small as possible during this 
and next year. But few have purchased books during the year. 



SCHOOL HOUSES. 

But little has been spent the past } r ear upon our school build- 
ings. We think the sum spent for school books could have been 
better employed in making our school rooms attractive and com- 
fortable. As there was not a sufficient number of blackboards at 
the South, Central and Village Primary rooms ; the lack was par- 
tially supplied by having one made for the South, and Village 
Primary at a cost of $150 each. To correspond with the rest of 
the interior, better lumber ought to be used for the Central than 
we were able to procure last Fall. 
Reading Charts costing $5.30 were furnished the Central school.

To the Citizens oe Dana: 

We present for your consideration our report of the progress and 
the present condition of the schools committed to our care. We 
have endeavored to give to each school our most careful and earn- 
est consideration in order that we might judge intelligently con- 
cerning the needs, the particular advantages or disadvantages, the 
possibilities, the progress and the condition of each. 

In our report of last year we suggested that the number of pupils 
at the Xorth School viz. three, did not warrant its continuance. 
In accordance with the views then presented, and as one of the 
three pupils voluntarily asked permission, which was granted, to 
attend another school, it seemed best to discontinue this school 
and to provide conveyance to other schools, for these pupils. The 
expense of this conveyance of course can not be defrayed from the 
money appropriated by the town for schools, but your committee 
have thought this the better course to take in the matter and sug- 
gest a suitable appropriation for this purpose for the ensuing year. 

We desire to remind the citizens of Dana that no town in our 
vicinity possesses better natural advantages for good schools than 
do we. Good schools should be the pride of every citizen and we 
think we may honestly take much encouragement in the fact that 
our pupils of all ages compare favorably with those who come from 
Other and in some respects, more highly favored communities 



10 SCHOOL REPORT 



We are however, very deficient in certain school furnishings such 
as maps, charts of various kinds, drawing cards, globes, and appa- 
ratus for illustrating various studies, which are really of great im- 
portance and of great help to the teacher. We have appropriated 
$50.00 this year to supply so far as may be this need and we hope 
that this may serve as a precedent to be followed in ensuing years, 
till our school houses are properly equipped with these helps. 

There were, upon the first of May last, one hundred and seven 
(107) children between the ages of five and fifteen in Dana. We 
have supported during the year five schools. We have employed 
the best teachers possible with the money at our command and we 
believe that the result of the year's work will compare favorably 
with those which have preceded it. We have found our teachers 
careful and pains-taking, and generally the pupils williDg and eager 
to succeed in their studies and to conform to the rules of the school 
room. But neither committee, teachers, or pupils should rest con- 
tent with doing well in the past, for improvement and advance are 
always possible and no class should be more mindful of this than 
those to whom we commit the care and instruction of our children. 
Our parents indeed should not consider that in providing school 
rooms and teachers that their duty is ended and that all responsi- 
bility rests thereafter with the teacher. To be sure, that of the 
teacher is great but that of the parent is not less. It is the duty of 
parents to often visit the school room, to form an acquaintance 
with the teacher in charge of the,ir children, to see that the school 
room is properly supplied with the necessary apparatus to illustrate 
the school studies, that the children are constant in attendance, 
and well behaved, for parents are more largely responsible for the 
behavior of their children than they are apt to regard themselves. 
Teachers and parents should be in harmony and constant commu- 
nication for their interests in this matter are identical. When they 
cease to be so there is something seriously wrong. It is easy, very 
easy, to place sprious obstacles in the way of a teacher for children 
read very surely, and are very apt to do what they shrewdly sus- 
pect will not be disapproved at home, if not actually encouraged. 
It is quite as easy on the other hand, to so influence a child at 
home that the success of a teacher shall be assured. So we say to 
each and every parent: We wish your help in even- possible way, 
to improve our schools; we wish your sympathy and your encour- 
agement as shown by your presence in the school room; we wish 
you to visit them often, not merely a visit of ceremony at the clos- 
ing exercises of the term but during term time when vou will see 
them in their ever}' day work and be able to judge what they are 
doing from one time to another. We have been much pleased by 
the frequent visits of parents and friends to some of our schools. 



ft l RKP0R1 1 1 



Greater interest upon the pari of scholars has been developed 
thereby, and greater progress made. We hope Id t t i « - year to some 
every school In town will be more freely risited than in the past. 
We have endeavored to keep In mind the fact thai In a very w w 
years at least, these scholars in our schools today, will take onr 
places ;md that upon us at tlii> time rests the grave responsibility 

to so teach and train them thai they may go <>ut of Our School into 
life, titled, ;is tar as may be possible to tact- the world and to take 
the part of true men and true women in the Struggles and labors 
which will arise in alter life. 

During the pasl year the Central, South, and Plain schools'have 
had thirty-three weeks <>t school. The village schools will have 

thirty. Owing to sickness in the family of the teachers, and'the de- 
sire to retain in these schools well tried and faithful teacher^.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



Review of Schools. 



CENTRAL SCHOOL. 



This school being the largest in town, calls for unusual interest 
on the part of parents, pupils, aud teachers to insure good results. 
We have endeavored to secure as teachers, only such as had proved 
their fitness by their success in teaching ungraded schools. 

It has been necessary 7 to change teachers each term during the 
year, but notwithstanding this disadvantage, an unusually good 
year's work has been done. The instruction given by each teacher 
has been most thorough, and the long terms have been a great 
advantage. 

Much credit is due to those pupils who by their good work have 
made this a pleasant school to teach. 



NORTn DANA PRIMARY SCHOOL. 

This school has been in charge of Mrs. E. L. Carter, a faithful 
conscientious, and successful teacher, for several years. 

Her long continued service is evidence of the satisfaction with 
which your committee regard her efforts to make this school what 
it really is — one of the best and brightest schools of this grade, 
which we have ever been permitted to visit.

Miss M. J. Richardson still continues in charge of this school, 
which under her unremitting care has attained a high standard of 
scholarship, which it easily maintains. Much improvement has 
been manifest during the past year. These schools illustrate in a 
marked manner, the advantage of retaining well tried and faithful 
teachers, from year to year, and the superior scholarship in these 
schools we attribute to this fict alone.

PLAIN SCHOOL. 

During the spring and tall terms this school was taught by Miss 

Nellie Doubleday, with whose work we feel well satisfied. Earnest, 
careful and painstaking in her work, we regard her as a very prom- 
ising and successful teacher. 

During the winter term Mr. M. T. Knapp was in charge of the 
school. This simple statement is sufficient guarantee of thorough 
work and marked improvement during the term. 

SOUTH scnooL. 

Mrs. Smith as teacher has instructed the pupils of this school 
with her usual care and ability. 

The fact that this school ranks one of the first in town in schol- 
arship is proof that all parties interested have improved their 
opportunities.

SCHOOL HOUSES. 



At Dana Centre we have a cheerful and pleasant school room 
with modern furniture, which needs only a few maps and charts 
upon its walls to be a model school room. It is an honor to the 
town. At the South school house we would suggest that the stove 
which did service some twenty-five years ago when one of your 
committee first taught school, has at last outlived its usefulness 
and safety, and that a new stove will soon be necessary here. With 
this addition and a few new curtains which seem very much need- 
ed, this room would be very pleasant. 

At the Brick school house upon the plain the interior is sadly in 
need of repairs. It should be thoroughly examined by some per- 
son of experience in such matters, and nothing should be done un- 
advisedly. It is probable that the whole interior will have to be 
made new in the near future if a school is to be maintained, and 
there appears to be a sullicient numlx-i- of BCholan in the district to 
require a school. 

At North Dana both school rooms have been recently papered, 
which add much to the lint' appearance of the room-. The most 
urgent need here is a chauge from the hard, uncomfortable and 
unhygienic seats and desks, to more comfortable and more modern 
furniture. 

The North school house has been provided with blinds or shut- 
ters to protect the property from mischievous or wanton injury.

Annual Report 



OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



OF THE 



TO^ATIN - OIF JDJ±3<TJ±. 
for the Year 1886-7. 



To the Citizens of Dana: 

We again present for your reconsideration our report of the condi- 
tion of the several schools in town, their progress and 1 he manner in 
which the money entrusted to our care has been expended. 

It has been our aim to consider the wants of the several schools, and 
to provide for them so as to obtain the best possible results with the 
means at our command. 

AVe feel that we can justly say that our schools for the past year have 
been as successful, and the results equally as good, as in any previous 
year. 

Each school has been furnished with twenty-nine weeks schooling-, 
except the one known as the North School, which, at the commence- 
ment of the year, lacked a sufficient number of scholars to warrant a 
profitable school ; so, as in the previous year, provisions were made for 
conveyance to other parts of the town. But, previous to the winter 
term, other parties having moved into the vicinity of the above men- 
tioned school house with children of lawful school age, it was thought 
advisable by the Committee to maintain another school, which consisted 
of one term of twelve weeks ; thus making five schools of twenty-nine 
weeks each and one school of twelve weeks. 



REVIEW OF SCHOOLS. 



CENTRAL SCHOOL. 

This school was taught the past year by Miss Hattie M. Whipple, an 
experienced and successful teacher. The instruction given was thor- 
ough, and the closing examination showed good progress. 

Some classes deserve praise for exceptionally good work. The num- 
ber of pupils who deserve credit for good deportment seems to increase, 
so that we hope the time may soon come when this school may rank as 
oik; of the first in town. 

The roll of honor shows that many have tried to be regular in attend- 
ance, the average during the winter term being reduced somewhat on 
account of sickness and unfavorable weather. 

NORTH DANA GRAMMAR SCHOOL. 

This school has been in charge of Miss M. J. Richardson for several 
years, and has developed under her careful management from a common 
school to a high standard of scholarship which justly deserves the name 
of grammar school — thus illustrating very clearly the advantages to be 
derived in securing good teachers and retaining them for a term of 
years. 

NORTH DANA PRIMARY SCHOOL. 

This school resumed its mark under the care of Mrs. E. L. Carter, who 
was well acquainted with its wants, (having had charge of it for several 
years,) and by her successful management not only acquired for herself 
a high recommendation as teacher, but so far gained the love of her 
pupils and the esteem of all who knew her. that it was with much regret 
that her request to resign her position was received at the close of the 
spring term. 

The fall term was taught by Miss Maria Williams of Petersham, who 
came with good recommendations and labored hard for the welfare of 
her pupils, yet it was deemed necessary by your Committee to secure a 
new teacher for the winter term, which was taught by Miss Lizzie A. 
Glasheen of Templeton, who was earnest in her work and succeeded to 
the satisfaction of all. 



9 
SOUTH school. 

This school has been taught for several years by Mrs. Mary C. Smith, 
and under her charge has acquired a high rank in scholarship, which 

the year's work \\ ill sustain. 

TLA IN SCHOOL. 

This school commenced Its labors under the charge of Miss Nellie 
Doubleday, who had taught (he school before with good success, and 

again maintained her former reputation as teacher. At the close of the 
Spring term Miss Doubleday expressed a desire to be released from her 

work, and the school for the fall term was in the care of Mrs. M. A. 
Doubleday, who had previously taught this school with good success, 

but at the closing examination the Committee discovered an evil exist- 
ing in the school which Mrs. Doubleday could not in their opinion over- 
come, consequently a change was made in teachers, placing Miss Doub- 
leday again in charge of the school for the winter term. The school 
was somewhat larger than formerly, consisting of several advanced 
scholars, yet the work was thorough and a marked degree of improve- 
ment was made. 

NORTH SCHOOL. 

This school, as has been before stated, consisted of but one term, and 
was taught by Mrs. EmmaM. Knapp, who has had former experience 
in teaching. Though the school was small, she awakened an interest 
fully equal to some of our larger schools.

SCHOOL HOUSES. 



Three of the school houses in town are in s*erj i_f »« »< 1 condition, if we 
may except the grammar school room at North Dana, which should be 
provided with modern seats. The other two— Plain and North school 

houses — arc in need of repairs. Your < lommittee ad\ Lsed, in their Last 
report, that the house on the Plain should be examined by persons of 
experience in Mich matter-, and the necessarj repairs made to make it 
more comfortable and tidy. \\'e would most earnestly recommend 

modern seats. 

The One known as the North school bouse 18 -adly ill need Of repair-. 

The chimney should be rebuilt, there should be new stovepipe and a 
thorough renovation throughout. 

Very little has been expended during the past year for repairs. A 
new out-building has been provided at the Plain, and some slight re- 
pairs at the Tillage and North school houses — the whole not exceeding 

twenty dollars, including tin 1 new out-building at the Plain.

Annual Report 



OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



OF THE 



TOW2sT OF ID^IsT-A. 

FOR THE YEAR 1887-8. 



To the People of Paxa : 

In presenting our annual report of the schools we would ask 
you to consider what should be the requirements that will meet the de- 
mand for good schools in this, or any town. 

We are not left in ignorance concerning - the meaning- of the expres- 
sion, "a good school/" in the minds of the founders of our educational 
system, for it was especially enjoined upon all instructors of youth "to 
exert their best endeavor to impress upon the minds of the children and 
youth committed to their care and instruction, the principles of piety 
and justice, and a sacred regard to truth; love of country, humanity, 
and universal benevolence; industry and frugality ; chastity, modera- 
tion, and temperance, and those other virtues which are the ornament of 
human society and the basis upon which a republican government is 
founded." 

Herein we have the lofty ideal which is set lor instructors to realize 
as far as possible in the practice of their professional duties, and which 
they are to so present that to the receptive mind the good way shall 
seem the best and plcasantesl way. Do (hose statutes leave ii (<> teach- 
ers only to perform this good work? No! so; those holding the highest 
local offices and the leaders of society were called upon to aid in secur- 
ing the accomplishment of the purposes of the law. 

The requirements rcmaiq the same to-day as when those enactments 
were made,-— I li«' -a me virtues form the basis of society and arc the safe- 
guards ;iL;:iin-t I \ rannv and ini.-i ulc. I Jul of the schoolf much more is 



expected than in those early days, and to every rank in society we must 
look for aid in this work; not unwilling-, grudging help, but help denot- 
ing the steadfast purpose which says "no vicious habit shall prevail to 
lead our children astray, and darken their prospect- in life if my influ- 
ence can have any weight." 

Let us consider in what way the weight of your influence can best 
effect this purpose. The way in some cases can be made clear in a very 
few words: Sec that your own children — if you -end any to school — 1»«. 
right. Do not depend upon their word alone for the proof, hut visit 
the school-room ; if the;, are not found attending to their own proper 

school duties yon can depend upon it that the fault 18 UOi wholly <»n tin- 
part of the teacher, and the correction, like charity, should begin at 
home. The time when mischievous proclivities might be taken m an 
evidence of a bright intellect has gone by. Good brain development 
will give a different evidence of it- power. We believe n<» child comes 
from a well ordered Uomc to be a source of trouble at school. 

I i" frequent complaints are made that a teacher is partial in instruct- 
ing or correcting one pupil more than another, look t'<>r failure of dut) 
on the part of the complainant. If roughness at plaj causes hard feel* 
ing, lend your influence by requiring that all shall keep the peace. 

Vulgaritj of speech aud profanitj will not be disturbing elemcuts 
in a community where public sentiment disapproves and home influence 
i> against it. You bavc a light to demand that the instructors of your 
children shall exemplify in their lives the virtues the) are required to 
impress on the mind- of your children. 

Above all. your interest in the school must never be allowed to 
slacken or your influence fail to strengthen the authority of th >-<• who 
faithfully trj to fulfil their obligations as instructors of the childrcu. 

During the year our sol Is were visited by Mr, Walton, an agent 

of the Board of Education. 



REVIEW OF SCHOOLS. 



VILLAGE GRAMMAR SCHOOL. 

The spring term was taught by Miss Xcllic Gordon, an experienced 
teacher of remarkably easy and firm government and excellent qualifica- 
tions. A deficiency in drill in the higher class in arithmetic was noted 
as the only lack. 

The fall term under Miss Lizzie Aw Glasheen, who was promoted 
from the Primary school, showed even better results than her work in 
the lower department. Special improvement was noted in the reading 
classes, an effect in part, probably, of suggestions given by Mr. Walton 
of the State Board of Education, and followed out by tin; teacher. 

The winter term, also under the charge of Miss Glasheen, showed 
continued good work by teacher and pupils. 

TILLAGE PRIMARY SCHOOL. 

SPRING TERM. 

This school, under charge of Miss Lizzie A. Glasheen, showed good 
results, as was to be expected from the teacher's previous work in the 
same school. 

The fall term, with Miss Lizzie W. Richardson as teacher, showed 
i lie lack of experience in the teacher who was a graduate of Salem Nor- 
mal school, and came highly recommended. In government there was a 
deficiency which was fatal to good work, and was realized and regret- 
led by teacher as well as by parents and committee, and which experience 
only can supply. 

The winter term, under Miss II. S. Farwell as teacher, immediately 
showed an experienced hand at the helm, and an excellent school was 
l.uight by her. ( 'onsiderable sickness ill the neighborhood caused a 

poor average of attendance \\ hicli could not be avoided. 

PLAIN SCHOOL. 

This school was placed under the instruction of Bdiss Nellie Double- 
day dining the iir-i term, and was taughl with her usual 8UCCC88. The 
younger n- well as older pupil- gave evidence of her ability. 

No! being able to secure her services again, Miss Mabel Ruimoiis 
engaged for the second terra Though without experieii , the re- 
tail proved her to be capable o1 becoming s successful tea< lictf. 



10 

The third term brought another change, and to Mr. M. T. Kuapp, 
whose former work in this school had proved very satisfactory, was 
given the charge of the school. A large proportion of the pupil- this 
term were well advanced in their studies and attended for the purpose 
of improving their opportunities. Expecting much, we were not disap- 
pointed in the work accomplished. 

CENTRAL SCHOOL. 

This school, the largest in town and for many reasons the most 
difficult, has been taught byE. L. Carter, an experienced and successful 
teacher, who has labored most earnestly for the good of all her pupils. 
The closing examination showed thai a good year's work had been per- 
formed by all who were faithful to their duties. 

A greai gain was noted in quickness <>f thought as ei inced b> read) 
replies to questions and the rapid, confident movement <>f the crayon in 
several exercises at the board, dictated by the committee. 

The progress <>f some of the little ones in reading and arithmetic w u 

think cannot be surpassed. With an earnest, I rablc spirit animating 

all, as it now does mauy of the pupils in ilii- school, it might be no( 
only the largest, but one of the most interesting in town. 

SOUTH SCHOOL. 

This is the oulj school in town which has nut bad 30 weeks in the 
school year, 28 weeks instead. The fti*6l term was brought to a sudden 
close by the appearance of scarlet fever in a fainih living very near the 
school bouse. 

Though a small school, it is one pleasant to visit from the fact that 
it has several verj intelligent pupils, well advanced in the studies pur- 
sued, who arc very much in earnest in their efforts to acquire kiiOM I- 
edge; this earnestness has been well sustained by the teacher, Mrs. 
Smith, and the closing examination, disclosing as ii did, independence 

of thought on the part of the pupils, was oi I the most satisfactory 

ever conducted by the visiting committee. 

Considerable attention lias been paid to language lessons as a part 
of the regular w ork of our schools ; originality in expression, of thought 
with grammatical correctness being the object sought at the Plain and 
South school* while taught by Mr. Eiuapp and Mrs.SinUh. At the Cen- 
tral school elementary work ha- been introduced, tin ncby \fi\ imj practice: 
to.. many of the younger a,s well as older, pupils, The result \\H? been

SCHOOL, HOUSES. 



For several years the school committee have desired to see all the 
school-rooms provided with modern furniture. As the desks in one 
room at North Dana and those at the Plain were not only unsightly, bill 
uncomfortable, and injurious to the weaker pupils — therefore unfit Cor 
use— they felt called upon to perform the duty prescribed in Sec. Hi of 
School Laws. According to this section, suitable school furniture musl 
bo provided by the town under penalty of "a fine of not less than $500, 
nor more than £1000.*' it is further Mated in explanation of this Section 
that "it is the duty of the school committee to keep the houses in good 
condition for the convenience, comfort, and health of the children ami 
their teachers." 

Accordingly desks were purchased for both rooms, a discount equal 
lo a year's interest on the whole sum expended being made because fur- 
niture was bough! for l> »th. instead of "tic room. This property citizens 
are t;i\<'d to procure; it now remains tor pnblic sentiment to indorse the 
action of (he committee, when, to protect this propcrh from wilful in- 
jury by pupils, they inflict a fine for such injury. 

Mr. Walton, ageni of the State Board of Education, Bays, "there is 

no! :i court in the ■-late which would not require the payment ol Buch a 

line." Much i- lefl to the discretion of the committei in such cases, Out 

the law regarding them is as follows, Public Statutes, Chap. 2( , S< .78: 

"Whoever willfully and maliciously, or wantonh and without 
cause destroys, defaces, mars or injures b Bchool house, church, or other 
building erected or used for purposes of education or religious instruc- 
tion, or for the general diffusion of knowledge, or an out-building, 

fence, well, or appurtenance of such a school house, church, or other 
building, or furniture, apparatus or other property belonging to or con- 
nected with such school house, church, or other building, shall be pun- 
ished by a tine not exceeding $500, or 1»\ imprisonment in jail h >: 

exceeding one year.** 

A fence— long needed— was buill around the school grounds at 
North Dana, the expense of which was much bckw carpenters'* esti- 
mates through the careful management of C. N Doane,who was selected 
as their purchasing agent by the committee appointed fortius purpose 
by the town. The details of the work and attendant trouble were there- 
fore borne by him. 

A stove was purchased for the South School and the desks at the 
Central and South school rooms were varnished : two coats of varnish 
were needed to put them in good condition. The cost of stove, new 
zinc, varnish, work and incidental expenses was $16.50. The expense 
of ordinary repairs has been very light.

ANNNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 
OF THE 

TOWN OF DANA 

For the Year 1888-1) 

To the People of Dana : 

AVe make our annual report of the schools and submit a few 
thoughts for their consideration, believing that with some our words 
will be sufficient to win a helpful response when the children arc again 
assembled — not merely for instruction in text book lore, but for lessons 
in self-control and self discipline, which must be taught in every well 
regulated school, as well as in the homes of the children. If this was 
not true, and our schools were not intended to teach equal rights and a 
corresponding respect for the rights of others, then we should not see 
such excitement as was lately manifested if our free scUdoI system is 
threatened by any danger. 

That loyalty to this Institution of our country may never be less, 
and that its benefits may be recognized by all, ii should he our pride to 
prove St a-, nearly faultless as possible, by keeping manners and morals 
free from reproach, bo that none can eornfully say ii is a source of 

evil. 

Wc hoar much from public speakers— addressing country audi- 
ence about ih« wholesomencss <>f life in the country, because free 
f rom thi temptations wbi'oh beset th< youth ofcitjei and large towns 



18 

yet it is well to remember that no place is free from corrupting and dc. 
basing- influences which must be guarded against, lest, in the absence of 
advantages which the cities possess, our country life may lose its charm. 

What is sown must bo reaped, and others, as well as the sower, 
must taste the bitter fruit of the harvest. This law is inevitable, yet 
some will scatter the tares thoughtlessly if the counsel and example of 
those older and wiser does not restrain the childish hands. 

Chief among the corrupting influences which besot the children, 
and one of the arguments brought against our public school system, is 
the use of foul language, such as might be expected from children 
brought up in city slums and educated for a lite of vice and crime, bin 
of which children of respectable parents, whether in city or country, 
should be ashamed. 

What parent among us would be \s illiug to admit that bad teaching 
at home, or lack of proper training has placed bis children, in this re- 
spect, on a level with the ignorant and dohased class to which we ha\ o 
referred; yet such children arc found in country schools, and the 
schools and their teachers are not responsible for their ill-conditioned 
minds; doubtless (ho parents are often unaware] thai ill ir children aw 
guilty of speech, which reflects discredit upon them. There is a legal 
romedy for this evil— severe ii is true. A correci public sentiment, ami 
wholesome parental restraini and counsel, \\<>nld ponder it unnecessary 
to resort to other measures. 

A largo proportion of our citizena have uo personal kuowledgc of 

what is being done for (he children in oursohools; if the] arc sufficient- 
ly interested to inquire of the children thi _ ■■ i butan in 
Which a visit to the school-room might wholly change. 

Laok of interest on the pari of parents often results in lackofiiu 
tcrest on the pari of the child, and the most trivial excuses are cousidi 
rvvd sufficient to gain consent thai thfl child may remain at Lom< 
Classes of which they were members pass on. and they are left behind, 
and Anally pass ou( of the school- without the menial power to becom< 
what, l.jul for- the ji]<liflferei)ce pf paronj 'i^ v arc ■ enable of being 



upyiEw 01 schools. 

It was the intention 0$ the committei to have twenty-nine \\«' 
schooling, This intention has been carried our «\ epi ai t&e ( entrak 



19 

school where the prevalence of whooping cough rendered it unadvisable 
to have more than twenty-eight weeks. 

The Milage Grammar school has not vet closed. The sickness and 
death of the teacher, Nellie Doubleday, having caused a temporary in- 
terruption of the work. Gifted in mind, strong in spirit, and faithful 
and true in the performance of life's duties, home and the community 
have met with a great loss by her decease, yet to all sorrowing friends 
the assurance comes that she has passed beyond the shadows of earth 
into the glorious light of immortality. 

CENTRAL SCHOOL. 

This school has had the advantage of being taught another year by 
E. L. Carter, whose faithful and untiring service last year showed her 
to be well fitted to cope with the numerous difficulties to be encountered 
in this school. Though a large, ungraded school with many classes, 
most thorough instruction has been given to all, and a great amount of 
work with corresponding progress is the just record of the year. 

Though an assistant was employed to hear some of the recitation-. 
the instruction was given almost wholly by the principal, and the credit 
tor progress made should, in fairness, be ascribed to her energy and 
faithfulness, which must be recognized by all candid minds. 

Especial praise must be given to many pupils for the advancement 
Which they have made. The primary classes rank the highest in town: 
of :i part of the intermediate classes the same may be said, and we arc 
confident that the pupil ot the highest grade in school lias Improved CS 
much as any of her age in town. 

VILLAGE GRAMMAR SCHOOL. 

This school under the charge of Mise Nellie Doublcday, has contin- 
ued l<> hold il^ high rank of the past. Seldom lias it been the good for- 
tune of your committee to visit bo interesting a school, largely on ac- 
count of tjie age and character of its scholars, who, aided by a teacher 
whose /eal never tired and whose strength never failed them, however 
much she may have suffered herself , have, as n whole, done honor to 
themsc Ives and i be teacher. 

The death of Miss Doublcday in the midst of the winter term has 
taken from as one whose future seemed to hold pare promise of useful- 
ness in her chosen vocation. 

Your, committee, ai the solicitation of some of the parents, thonghf 
host to continue the school for the remaining three weeks under the 



20 

charge of Miss IT. S. Farwell, whose term at this time is not closed. 

VILLAGE PRIMARY SCHOOL. 

This school has also been fortunate in continuing under the charge 
of so experienced a teacher as Miss IT. S. Farwell. Her work lias been 
thorough and the attendance good as a whole, though some of the pa- 
rents have been lax in enforcing attendance, for no other reason than 
the "don't want to" of their children, an example of which was seen at 
the examination for the last term. 

PLAIN SCHOOL. 

This school was under the care and instruction of Miss Minnie A. 
Williams during the spring term. Parents and pupil- were pleased 
with her work, but as she procured a better situation, a charge became 
necessary. The remainder of the year the school was in the charge of 
Miss Olive E. Childs. Though without previous experience a< a teach- 
er she proved herself to be of more than ordinary ability, and the school 
gained much under her instruction. Some of the work of pnpilfl w ;T 
excellent. 

SOUTB SCHOOL. 

This school was taught daring the first two terms by Mary C.Smith, 
whose long connection with the school has been appreciated by all in" 
te rested. With regret the committee found it necessary t«» procure an- 
other in her place which was tilled by Mi->< Mabel M. Emmons. So small 
a school rarely keeps the interest manifested here. Regularity of at- 
tendance, except on account of sickness, is the ruli* of this sch »«•!. ( ;,»,);! 
progress was made by all daring the thre ! terms.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE'S REPORT. 11 



ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE : 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF THE TOWN OF DAM, 

FOR THE YEAR 1889-90. 



TO THE CITIZENS OF DANA: 

On preparing our annual report the question always recurs 
to my mind, how shall I present the thoughts and motives 
which have actuated us in preparing and conducting the work 
assigned us so that we may retain and increase your interest 
in our schools. 

No worthy thought ever reached fulfilment without 
awakening in other minds a response which carried that 
thought aa an Influence for good to others. 

It is equally true that plans and purposes often fail because 

of opposition which would not exist if the plan or purpose was 
seen from our point of view. 

It should be remembered that no one is so good or wise 
that someone will not question the goodness or doubt the wis- 
dom and integrity of purpose, and where this feeling exists 
assistance is often denied, and the hest one is capable of doing 
cannot be accomplished lor lack of sympathy or good will. 

This being true in other departments of labort and in all con- 
ditions of life, it follows that it must be ti m- of b< hools and all 
t onnected \\ it h them. 



12 school committee's report. 

Looking back upon whatever of success or failure the past 
held we determined to improve upon that past so far as prac- 
ticable. To this end changes in several text books were re- 
quired and made as soon as it could be decided by careful 
examination and comparison what would best suit our present 
needs and future requirements. 

In some cases the cost of exchange and furnishing new 
books to the schools was no greater than would have been the 
expense of providing classes with needed books of the old 
series. 

Charts were provided for all the schools from last year's 
balance. 

Where vacancies have occurred, teachers who could fur- 
nish satisfactory recommendations were sought, and only such 
were engaged to teach in our schools. 

No one who has thoughtfully studied life and realized its 
difficulties, discouragements and perplexities, can fail to know 
that it is no light task a teacher has to perforin who gives time, 
thoughtful interest and painstaking care to develop the talents 
with which nature has endowed her pupils so that they shall 
realize that their minds may become storehouses of pleasant 
and useful information, increasing in value in proportion to 
their efforts to do well their part in securing the treasures ot 
knowledge. 

The teacher of today, who would not be placed upon the 
retired list, must be alert, progressive, and conscientiously 
labor for the moral, intellectual and social well-being of those 
entrusted to her care, and at the same time strive to develop 
a method of teaching which will prove of practical value to her 
pupils through life. 

The one rule which is the foundation of all moral instruc- 
tion was given centuries ago when Christ taught his disciples, 
saying, "Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men 
should do to yon, do ye even so to them." 

We may claim that the intellect is properly cared for when 
effort is constantly made to awaken the true student spirit, a 
love of knowledge for its own sake, and that social instruction 
is inseparably connected with the moral. 



school committee's report. 13 

We have the co-operation of many. We know that the 
interests of parents is in their children's advancement and that 
not a few will aid us in our efforts for further improvement, 
and since "a good school cannot exist until created by a good 
teacher" may we not reasonably ask of all that they give to those 
who are trying to do their duty by the children their cordial meed 
of appreciation, and that where a difference of opinion exists 
they will accord this measure of justice, to judge, after a hear- 
ing of both sides, with fairness, as they would wish to be 
judged. 

In the schools of small towns some variations from the 
methods of teaching followed in cities and large towns must 
be expected. The best interests of all render this necessary. 
But it should not be forgotten by those who would prefer the old 
methods that it is for the interest of the children to have such 
instruction given as will enable them to rank well elsewhere. 
We fail in our purpose if we do not succeed in this. 

We have said many times, we say again, visit our school 
rooms in friendly spirit as frequently as you can. Your pres- 
ence, even if your visits are brief, will benefit the schools. 

Hut for the prevalent epidemic, and other causes, our 
school year would have been longer and our balance less. 

The Village schools have had thirty-two, the Plain school 
thirty-three *and the Central will have thirty-one weeks in the 
school year. 

Had circumstances been more favorable two or three 
more weeks would have been a great advantage to tin- older 
pupils. 



14 SCHOOL COMMITTEE'S REPORT. 



REVIEW OF SCHOOLS. 



VILLAGE GRAMMAR SCHOOL. 

For the Spring term the always doubtful experiment of 
hiring a teacher from the former pupils of the school was 
tried. Under these circumstances .Mr. Arthur I. Powers 
taught a fairly successful school, which should be considered a 
prophesy of his future success as teacher, if lie continues in 
the calling. 

The Fall term, with Miss Ilattie M.Whipple as teacher, gave 
excellent results, as the faithful work of the teacher was 
heartily seconded by both scholars and parents which always 
gives good results. 

The Winter term, under Miss Josie E. Lincoln, was 
somewhat broken up partly through the prevalence of sickness, 
but still more so by the stand taken by some of the parents who 
allowed their children to be judges of the methods of teaching 
as well as government and withdrew from its attendance with- 
out consultation of either teacher or committee, and without 
visiting the school in person to take the evidence of their own 
eyes and ears. 

This precedent being to the minds of your committee, a 
most dangerous one to the welfare of the school as a whole. and 
to the scholar as an individual, cannot be too strongly con- 
demned. 

VILLAGE PRIMARY SCHOOL. 

The Spring term was taught by Miss Mary S. Maynard 
who brought to this her first school, the latest methods of in- 
struction and a love for her chosen work, which created a zeal 
for learning in the minds of her scholars unknown to them be- 
fore. Such being the case but one result could be expected, 
which was fullv realized in a most successful school. 



SCHOOL CO^fMITTEE , S REPORT. 15 

For the Fall and Winter terms the services of Miss Lucy 
\V. Harden were secured, also a beginner in teaching, who, 
pursuing the same methods as her predecessor, made for her- 
self a fine reputation as teacher, and kept up the excellent 
record oi the school for the year. 

PLAIN SCHOOL. 

This school has made commendable progress during the 
year. 

The teacher for the first term was Miss Olive Childsi 
whose former experience as teacher had been in the same 
school. In leaving the school she had the best wishes of the 
visiting committee for her future success. 

Miss L.S. Clary succeeded her and taught the two remaining 
terms. Her work met the approval of all. We seldom 
hear appreciation ol faithfullness in school work so freely ex- 
pressed by parents aa in her case. It is gratifying to know that 
parents see and approve good work. 

An expression of such approval makes it easier to secure 
and retain good teachers. 

The good work and willing spirit of the pupils in this 
school merit our commendation. 

Language work lias received especial attention during the 
winter term. 

CENTRAL S< BOOL. 

On account of sickness which interrupted the- work of this 
school, the- winter term ie doI completed at the time of writing 
this report. 

With this term ends three years of faithful Bervice by the 
same teacher, who, by her untiring interest, not onlj Bhows, 

but leads the wav she would have her pupils follow. 

Written work in the different branches of Btudy was re- 
quired by ht! before it was introduced into the other schools 

of the town. 

Lai work in various forms I 

Mtion, and all are intei ested in it. 



16 school committee's report. 

We believe no school in town has made so great improve- 
ment during the year as this. 

Perfection in school work, or the best results, cannot be 
expected until all do the b^st work of which they are capable. 

In a school like this there are many discouragements 
which do not exist in smaller or graded schools. More fre- 
quent visits from parents would lesson these. 

The attendance during the winter term has so far been very 
good, a large proportion having been neither absent nor tardy* 



ROLL OF HONOR. 



The following are names of those who have been neither 
absent nor tardy. The figure after each name represents the 
number of terms.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE S REPORT. 



ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF DANA 

FOR THE YEAR 1890-01. 



To the Citizens of Dana : 

We report that taking the schools singly and collectively, 
the close of the year shows a very gratifying advance in schol- 
arship. 

Thifl gain, showing as it does the interest of the children 
in their work, is conclusive evidence that the teachers have 
performed their part with earnest purpose to do all. and more 
than all that was expected of them by the committee. 

The year began with definite plans for Btudy and discipline, 
wherever discipline bad to be considered with reference to its 
importance bb an aid to the acquirement of knowledge. 

No stringent or arbitrary rules were made, bul in one 
school it was found necessary to require that children who did 
not study during school hoars, ■« d consequently were receiv- 
ing do benefit from bein i >l, should be detained after 
1 o'clock to leai d the less >u assign • I them. 

Ai a theory do one will question the Justice of this coi 
e the truth of the time honored maxim atx at idleness and 
chief bas alwayi been admitted. 

In practice) the effect of the rule upon all who w< t to

school to learn was most salutary as the gain in scholorship 
attests. 

One family made such determined and persistant effort to 
disregard this rule that one child was excluded during the win- 
ter term, because the parents, who had twice disturbed the 
school by going to the schoolroom and interfering with the 
teacher's authority by commanding the child to go home be- 
fore the lesson was learned, were infoimed that she could 
not be again received as a pupil until they agreed not to fur- 
ther interfere with the teachers mnnngcment of her while at 
school. 

This they did not do, but contrived to secure some outside 
sympathy which, in one case at least, assumed that the child 
was abused, because for some of her misconduct, she was not 
horse whipped ifnecessaty. instead of being excluded from the 
privilege of attendance by her own disobedience, or her par- 
ent's unwillingness to allow her to do right or do so themselves. 
As the committee in charge of the school had advised 
that whipping should not be resorted to in this case, the teach- 
er deserves credit — not cei sure — for g< < d judgment and lady- 
like self control under grest provocation. 

No one but the parents can he reasonably blamed for the 
loss of schooling which the child suffered. Others doubtless, 
having but an imperfect knowledge of the facts, thought the 
committee were unjust, but they had the good of the school to 
consider and have a legal right to exclude "for misconduct 
which injures the discipline and management of a school." 
The discipline was much better for this child's absence, and the 
cheerful attention to school duties and evident pleasure in hav- 
ing good lessons generally displayed by other pupils were posi- 
tive proofs that they were not overtasked or harshly treated. 

It is well to be fine of the truth of an ill repot t before one 
helps to circulate it. and every hardworking, conscientious 
teacher laboring in Chiistian spirit— as all our teacher's have — 
to elevate the moral tone and inculcate good principles in the 
minds of the children, should have an earnest Godspeed, a 
helping hand, sympathy, and good will from all. 

As qui'c a huge balance of money was at our disposal, it

to defray the expense of instruction in vocal music if a suita- 
ble teacher could he found. 

We w< re very fortunate in being able to secure the services 
M -. S. T. Smith of Athol, who has made a specialty of 
this work in schools. 

Her work has been highly patis factor) to us and must be

We had the ultimate good to the comraunit) in view when 
we inti ; it, and hope the citizens of the town will be wil- 

ling to add one hundred dollar- to tlu- usual appropriation to 
continue the work an >ther year. 

All that I ;i expended by the committee for this pur-

fund.

those other virtues which are the ornament of human society" 
ma}' prevail to perpetuate that fieedcm for which the fathers 
fought, toiled and suffered. 

That these virtues may be successfully taught in the 
schools, the homes must keep the hearts of the children pure, 
and their minds receptive of good, so that even they can under- 
stand the fine distinction made by Kingsley when he says, 
"There are two freedoms — the false where one is free to do 
what he likes — the true where one is free to do what he 
ought." 

Rough, bleak, and hard, our little state 
Is scant of soil, of limits strait ; 
Her yellow sards are sands alone, 
Her only mines are ice and stone. 

Yet on her rocks and on her sands 

And wintry hills the schoolhouse stands. 

*■**■*♦ 

The riches of the Commonwealth 

Are free, Strong minds and hearts of health : 

And what her rugged soil denies, 

The haivcst of the mind supplies. 

Art builds on sands, tl e works of pride 
And human passions change nn(\ fall : 
Hut that which shares the life of God 
With him sun iveth all.

REVIEW OF m HOOLS. 

During the year, the Village schools have had thirty weeks 
instruction, the Plain school thirty-one. and the Central 
school thirty-two ; the last named having had one week less 
than the other during each of the preceding two years, it was 
made up to the children this year.

Miss Lucy A. Parker has been employed as teacher of 
this school for the year. We are glad to note an increased in- 
terest and great advance in knowledge and ability to acquire it,

as a result of the thoughtful care and thoroughness which have 
characterized her instruction. We hope all who have children 
in this school will recognize the merit of the work she has 
achieved.

SCHOOL COMMITTEE S REPORT. 



PLAIN SCHOOL.. 

Your committee having charge of this school submit the 
following report, having labored under some disadvantages, 
though trying to do my whole duty : The expens of the 
school, per capita, far exceeds that of any school in town. 
While we hesitate to discontinue any school, we desire to se- 
cure the greatest good to the greatest number, and that the 
few scholars shall have the benefit of the best advantages in 
town. A school of the size of this at the beginning of the 
last school year can not be profitably carried on, either to 
teacher, pupils or the town. For the spring term we were for- 
tunate in securing a teacher of experience, Miss Lizzie Clary, 
who had methods of employing the time to the very beet ad- 
vantage and the school was a \s. She would have re- 
turned had not the matter of discontinuance of the school been 
talked of, and when at the last momenl almost, it was deci 
to have a school there and the matter was left wholly with one 
ol the committee, whose desire it was that the sch< ol should 
continue in as good c< ndilion as bef< re, and I en- 
gaged for the fall term Miss Grace Gibbs, who was 
highly recommended and whose ed scarce less 
than her predecessor. Bui the \ sl\ m - so n Bhe did not 
feel that she could return for the term. By advertis- 
ing for a teacher, from tin- Beveral applicants 1 s< ected one, 
Miss Lucy Nay lor, a teacher ol experience, who in my 
judgement was best suited for t nd Bhe taught the 
winter term, introducing some new features which made the 
term iro less a success than the previous ones aad been, and 
my anticipations were full) realized. J he probable permanent 
increase in number of Bcholars in the district will doubl 
necessitate the continuance of a Bchool here, and 1 desire a 
cooperation with our efforts for the success of the school.

T<> tin- (yitizi-iis of Dana ; 

Diking tlic paM year we find much to encourage us in the 
belief that tlic work we were to superintend has been carried onl 
with good results, and also much which indicates where greater 
effort, and continued care, must be taken, to keep the work in 
the line of Hue progress. 

All are aware that methods of leaching have undergone ureal 
oimnges within a few year^. Educators expect that, through 
Hii- methods now in use. children will pass out <>f the Bohools 
with much better knowledge of the branches taught, than was 
possible to acquire by the methods formerly used. 

Thf teachers of the presenl time, however, have a much 
harder task to perform, since more time and thought must In- 
*.' i \ • • n to the manner <»f presenting the ideas which shall quicken 

the desire for more thorongll and extended knowledge, !IS well 

pon examination of the work of the children. l<> see if each 

Hiibjed is properly understood. The care, patience and interest 
in their pupils which m11 this involves, is little understood, even 
by those who realize thai to tin- work is :idded the training and 
checking of r)1 tendencies t" wrong-doing, so "thai spark <>t 
heavenly fire, the conscience," may remain quick to distinguish, 
and <•! se. t he right . 



Education of some kind every one will have ; but, in the 
general thought, it should mean development of all the good 
gifts and powers with which the children are, by nature, en- 
dowed, and here the teacher should have the helpful interest of 
parents and friends to aid her. that the children may profit by 
the wise restraints which the school discipline opposes to the 
lawless element always, or nearly always, to he found. Remove 
the barrier which well-taught schools, by their influence upon 
mental and moral power, oppose to this element, and tyranny 
and oppression would soon place us upon a level with I 
favored lands, whose ignorant people seek our shores; for 
wherein are we better than they, unles- in the ability and desire 
which education gives us to oppose good against evil. The 
evils exist, like the weeds that spring up with the plant- which 
sustain life, — care only will keep down the weeds. So our 
schools must be cared for. that they may send out thoughtful 
boys and girls, with good principles, to become honored men 
and women of the future. 

Massachusetts claims i<> have originated the free public 

school, by an Act of 1647. Allow, once more, in ;i school re- 
port, :i quotation, to show the spirit of those early days, when 
instruction was provided U^\ that the liberty they had sought. 
and won, should ever prove m priceless blessing. 

Chap 5, Sect. 2, of the Constitution of Massachusett 
adopted in 1780, is as follows: 

"Wisdom and knowledge, as well as virtue, diffusa I 
erally among the body of the people, being necessary for the 
preservation of their rights and liberties; and as these depend 
on spreading the opportunities and advantages of education in 
the various [tarts of the country, and among the different orders 
of the people, it shall be tin- duty of legislatures and magistra 
in all future periods of this Commonwealth, to cherish the in- 
terests o( literature and the sciences, and all seminaries of them, 
especially the University at Cambridge, public Bchools and 
Grammar schools in the towns; to encourage private societies 
and public institutions, rewards and immunities for the promo- 



5 



tion of agriculture, arts, sciences, commerce, trades, manufac- 
tures, and a natural history of the country; to countenance and 

inculcate the principles of humanity and general benevolence, 
public and private charity, industry and frugality, honesty and 
punctuality in their dealings; sincerity, good humor, and all 
social affections, and generous sentiments, among the people." 

In 1789, a general Act was passed, requiring every town to 
maintain one school for tin- term of six months, or two or more 
schools for terms of time that shall, together, he equivalent to six 
months, in which shall he taught orthography, reading, writing. 
English grammar, geography, and decent behavior. 

From time to time. Legislation has increased our privileges 
and our obligation to the State and nation may be stated in the 
general principle underlying our constitutional rights, that self 
interest should not conflict with the common interest and well 

being of all. 

If. at first, from scanty means the State provided for this 
ae, and since then has aided wilh liberal hand, shall not w e 

tind it our dutv to do our best to increase the advantages of 
schooling, and can we not unite in securing that thoughtfulness 

in the children which will lead all to enter the schoolroom with 

:i desire to he. bv studious habits ami gentle manners, a credit 
to themselves and the community in which thev live? If in this 
we can work in unison, then we help to carry oul their thought.

REVIEW OF SCHOOLS. 



Four schools have been sustained this year with the money 
available for the purpose. We regret to say that our town, like 
others of low valuation, received this year less from the income 
of the State School Fund than has been allowed previously. 
From the dog tax we had about $10 less than last year ; thirty- 
five dollars represents more than the cost of a week's schooling 
for all. 

We furnished 30 weeks tuition at the Plain school, and shall 
have the same length of school nt the Centre. At North Dana 
we have had but 20 weeks, but in these schools instruction in 
vocal music has been given each term. 

Last spring we asked for an appropriation of $100 to con- 
tinue instruction in music, Dana and North Dana schools having 
taken the study the previous year. Many parents at North 
Dana were in favor of this, but at Dana Centre it was strongly 
opposed by some. As a result of this opposition, the article 
was passed over. The committee asked for a reconsideration at 
the April meeting, with the same result. As parents of school 
children at North Dana would pay a part of the expense, the 
lessons were continued two terms, at a cost tons of $55.50, that 
amount from the income of the State fund being used for the 
purpose ; the committee having a legal right to so use it. The 
winter term was paid for by subscription. At the close of the 
winter term an operetta was given by the schools, under the 
direction of Mrs. S. F. Smith, their teacher of vocal music. 
This entertainment proved that the children had improved their 
opportunities, since correctness of execution marked this public 



exhibition of their ability and their teacher's fitness as an in- 
structor. The committee, at the next town meeting, will again 
ask tor tin- same appropriation for this purpose. The only reason 
why the (untie school <li<l not this year share in these Lessons 
was tin- opposition made by parent-- in that village. We also 
asked for an appropriation by the town for the conveyance of 
pupil.- living a great distance from school. This article in the 
wanant met the same fate as the other. We hope at the next 
town meeting to receive at least the courtesy of the citizen's 
votes on these two articles. Children living a long distance 
from school, it" under s vears of acre* or not strong, labor under 
.1 great disadvantage it' conveyance is not provided. We believe 
ii is the duty of the town to appropriate money for this purpose. 
Distance from, not tin- discontinuance of a school, should be the 
just reason tor furnishing conveyance. 

Tht' North Dana Grammar school was taught by Miss K. I.. 
Richardson. She lias taught in this town many terms. Her 
faithfulness and energy, inspiring to the Bame in her pupils. i> 
too well known to make it necessary to say good work has been 
• h »i if . 

The Primary school was taught by Miss t£udoru Lawrence. 
Her instruction lias also given -"'"I results. We arc glad to say 
harmony has prevailed in tin-- school during the year, ami much 
credit is given to i he teacher. 

The Danii Centre school wua taught during the spring term 

M — fcl. K. Rogers. She was received by a [wrtiou of the 
school as though an enemy, ami rules necessary t<> control the 
school were not easily enforced. She accomplished so much 
good work uudei these adverse circumstances, that it i- unit 
fair • . that :• different reception would have made u ren 

great difference in thi rhieh could have beeu dom . 

She weut from us with the liest wishes <>\ the committee ror her 
future success. Miss I. M Xn »li was appointed teachei for tin- 
fall term. She was received in ;• different spirit, : * 1 1 « i won the 
goodwill -•! hei pupils. The tchool b( ii <-.i i,, hei t"i tin 

wintei term, sli ; .i..i. : .n.i had taught but sevcu days, when 



8 



the alarming illness of her mother called her away. For this and 
other reasons, there ensued a vacation of several weeks, 
therefore, this school is still in session, to complete the 
winter term. This school is the largest in town, but has 
a pleasant schoolroom, large enough to accommodate it. For 
several years no other school lias outranked it in yearly 
progress, but this year, chiefly from difficulties in governing it, 
it has not, in all classes, advanced as rapidly as some others. It 
is the unruly element which has kept it back : remove that dis- 
turbing element and no difficulty would be found in controliug 
or in instructing the school. Some advocate a division of the 
school; of this, there is no need, but good discipline must be 
maintained. At North Dana the schools vary in uumbers from 
term to term. Sometimes it has seemed that it would lie policy 
to unite them, but in every instance when it Las been thought by 
one member of the committee to be possible to unite them, the 
next term the number in the primary room has increased so as 
to make it impossible. The number of classes nt the Grammar 
school is now nearly the same as at the Centre. We mention 
these facts because many have the impression that teachers al 
North Dana have but little to do. and. therefore, that those 
schools are more highly favored than others in town Since 
pupils of the same age bave averaged as high in scholarship in 
the large school as in the smaller grades, it is easy to see that 
this is not true, but it cannot be expected that people who bave 
no knowledge of what is being done in the >cho<il> can judge 
correctly of their needs or their work. 

The following report, for the Plain school, is submitted : 
For the spring term, Mis> Navlor, who taught the previous 
term, with a good degree ol success, was returned, and the good 
work which she had begun was continued. 

Her engaging in other work, necessitated a change for the re- 
mainder of the year, and Miss Clara Newell, a graduate of 
Northfield Seminary, and u teacher ol' some experience, heme, 
well recommended, was engaged and continued throughout the 
remainder of the vear.

We feel to say that in her work Bhe was conscientious, effi- 
cient, energetic and zealous. She gained the confidence of the 
parents and pupils, and merits our approbation. 

The greatest draw-back in both teachers' work in this school. 
is its diminutive number. While we feel that the few Deed the 
game advantages as the many, we would, were it possible, sub- 
stitute some method l»v which greater results might be obtained, 
than can be under the present conditions, in this district, 
though we feel a sense of gratification at the interest manifest- 
ed here in the general regular attendance of the scholars. 

We would not deprive the youngest, nor the oldest, of the 
advantages which rightfully to them belong, by any means; bul 
feel to do all that Yw> within our limited power— (limited by 
cramped, pecuniary limitation) — to do the very best for all con- 
cerned. 

I think 1 speak the mind of the whole Board, when I stab 

t hi- : Thai we feel to a-k you. the people of this town, to grant 
ii- larger appropriation, that we may give to the scholars heir 
whose privileges arc. and from necessity ever must be, less than 
towns of larger size, greater advantages, by extending the 
year's term of school from thirty to thirty-sis week-. 

We think no better use can be made of the children'- time, 
1101 of your money, than to make this change in the length of 
t be school year. 

1 he aggregate cosl would only amount to a ven insignificant 
sum. for each individual, while the greater gain to the vonim 
people of this and succeeding generations would more than 
K|.a\ all, and would largely \m\ for the investment.

A.XNLAL REPORT 



-OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



-OK THE — 




H 



FOR THE YEAR 1892-93. 



To the ( itizi na of I ><> na : 

Mi ring the past year <>uv experience has taught us that it is 
not only ad vi sable 1 but our duty, to unite with other towns in 
this district, and have a School Superintendent, whose <lni\ it 
shall be to devote :ill <>f \\\> time and talents to the good of the 
school, as, under tin- present s t:itr law, the expense to the Town 

ifl but :i trill''. 

Five schools have been sustained tlii> year with the money 
available for the purpose. We Furnished thirtv-tbree weeks 1 
tuition at the < entre School, twenty-eight weeks at lh< Plain 
School and thirty weeks at North Dana. 



Center School.- This school, for the past few years, has 
been the largest in town, — larger than one teacher could teach 
successfully, although we have had good teachers. At the last 
Annual Town Meeting, the Town voted to enlarge the School- 
house, which has been done, and the school graded. The spring 
term was under the charge of Miss Marie A. Bowers, an experi- 
enced teacher, who labored hard for the good of the school, hut. 
owing to feeble health, was obliged to resign her duties liefore 
the close of the term. Mrs. Nellie Brown was engaged to con- 
tinue the school the remainder of the term, Being an experi- 
enced teacher, she gave the best of satisfaction. The fall term 
the school was graded. 

The Grammar School was taught bv Mis- Ethel V. Comer- 
ford, who came with good recommendations. She lalxtred lend 
for the interest of the school, which showed good results at the 
close. The winter term was taught by Miss Comerford. She 
tried to do her part, bu1 the scholars seemed to lose interest in 
the school, and, at the close of the term, the progress made was 
not what we wished it might have been. 

The Primary School, fall ami winter terms, was taught bv 
Miss Helen L. Sweet, and much credit is due both teacher mid 
pupils. The scholars in this school have been neglected in .•• 
degree, owing to the large number in the school before it w;i> 
graded. The committee were well pleased with the progn m 

made in t his SCh< >ol. 

Plain School. — -The spring term was under the charge <>( 
Miss Clara L. Newell, with .1 fair degree of pi 2 -- The fall 

term was taught 1>\ Mis-. ( harine Kerf. . St lt€ Normal School 

graduate, with some experience as a teacher. It was the opinion 
of the committee not to continue the school longer than eight 
weeks, as the progress made was poor. The winter term 
taught bv Miss Lizzie Wesson, of Hardwick, with a fair degree 
of progress. On account of sickness aud bad roads, and chil- 
dren living a long distance from this school, the attendance 
not encouraging. 

The committee would suggest that the Town approprii 



money for the conveyance of children living a long distance 
from school. We believe it to be a duty of every town. 

The spring term of the Grammar School at North Dana was 
taught by Miss Blanche D. Avey. Her instruction has given 
good results. The fall and winter terms were taught l»v Miss 
Caroline V. Thayer, of Enfield, and, the committee are glad to 
say, with a good degree of progress. 

The Primary School was taught by Miss Bessie M. Fales, 
with good results, and much credit is given both teachers and 
scholars. 

We would ask the voters of this town to please remember 
that we have one more school to sustain now than when the last 
appropriation was made.

ANNUAL REPORT 



<>!•■ THE 



School Committee of the Town of Dana. 



To the Citizens <>i Dana: In presenting the report for 
the year 1893— '9 1. then- are comparatively few items to which 
wc need call special attention. At a school committee meeting, 
March 1st, 1893, it was thought best to choose a visiting com- 
mittee, and Mi'. M. T. Knapp was chosen, and it is the minds 
of the committee that be has performed the duties as Bucb to 
tin satisfaction <>f the scholars, teachers, parents and com- 
mittee. Mr. Knapp reports that the schools all seen] to be 
running smoothly, and our teachers, I » * > 1 1 1 new and old, are 
di >ing got »d \v< >rk . 

five schools have been sustained this year with the mone\ 
available for the purpose. We furnished thirty-one weeks 1 
tuition ai the. North Dana Grammar School, and thirty weeks' 
at the Primary Bchool, thirty-two weeks' at the Plain school, 
and thirty-one weeks' at both (irammarand Primary schools at 
i be ( 'enter. 

North Village Grammar School, spring term, was taught b> 
Miss Caroline V. Thayer. Misn Thayer bad previously taught 
this scl I. with satisfactory results, and this term showed quite 

ood degree of progress. \i the close of the term, Mian 

Thayer expressed o desire to be excused from ber work bere as 

ier, and Miss Lizzie \. Kelley was secured as teacher for 

the fall and winter terms. Miss Kelley came well recommended, 

; 1 1 1 . 1 the school was quite successful undei ber training, 



22 

North Village Primary School, spring term taught by Miss 
Bessie M. Fales, as usual, was satisfactory to everyone, and 
the committee very much regretted that the circumstances were 
such that she could not remain throughout the vear. On account 
of the sickness of her mother, she felt her duty was at home. 
The fall term, taught by Miss Florence W. Kaler, was not quite 
as satisfactory as the committee would have liked. The whiter 
term was taught by Mr. Charles M. Lindsey. This was Mr. 
Lindsey's first term, but he seemed to have the necessary re- 
quirements for teaching, and was quite successful, the school 
making a good degree of progress while in his care. 

The Plain school was under the care of Miss Lizzie S. Clary 
the whole year. Miss Clary, being a teacher of large experi- 
ence and a Normal graduate was very successful in her meth- 
ods of teaching, and her work was quite satisfactory. 

Dana Center Grammar school spring and fall terms were 
under the charge of Miss Caroline K. Shirley. Miss Shirley 
proved herself fully equal to the occasion, and a good degree of 
progress was made, the school appearing satisfactory to both 
parents and committee. The winter term was taught by Miss 
Helen L. Sweet. Miss Sweet, having been very successful as 
teacher in the Primary school, your committee fell no misgivings 
in asking her to take the Grammar school, which she did. with 
the same satisfactory resiilt>. 

Dana Center Primary School spring and fall terms were 
taught by Miss Helen L. Sweet, and were very satisfactory in 
every respect. The winter term was taught by Miss Mabel 
Scribner. Miss Scribner. although a stranger to the pupils, 
seemed to have no break from their former training, and her 
work was quite satisfactory to pupils and parents, as well as to 
the committee. By some mistake, the register of this school 
has never reached your committee, rendering it impossible for 
us to give you a full report. 

(;. L. JOHNSON, Secretary. 

M. T. KNAPP, for Committee.

REPORT OF THE 

Trustees of the Town Library. 



The 1 1'" sf'-i's of the Town Jjibrnry beQ leave to present their 

t hi ril An n mi! Report : 

One year ago, :it the time of our last report, the Library 
contained 359 volumes. Since thai time, there have been 
added as follow 

From the State, eleven volumes; chiefly books <>t' reference. 

\',\ gift from Col. T. S. Johnson, nine volumes. 

By gift from John II. Johnson, four volumes. 

By gift from James S. Brown, <>ii»- volume. 

Purchased with the appropriation by the Town, thirty-nine 
\ < riumes, making the total number <»t books 123. 

During the year ending Feb. 19, 1895, eleven cards from tin* 
room a 1 North Dana, and twenty-two cards from the room at 
Dana have been delivered to as many uew patrons of the Li- 
brary. One hundred : > 1 1< 1 seventy cards had previously been 
issued, making a t<>t.-il i»t" tw-> hundred and three persons who 
have taken books. 

There have been 370 volumes taken from the North Dana 
room, and 607 from that al Dana, making 977 volumes taken 
by two hundred and three different persons during the year. 
From thi it appears probable that one-half, at least, 

of the inhabitants of the entire i«>\nh. of suitable age, read these 
hooks. 

M l I has collected inting to $2.29, and paid 



40 

out for stationery, etc., thirty cents. Mrs. Whipple lias col- 
lected ninety-six cents from delinquents. There is now in the 
hands of Miss (Jakes, $4.69. In the hands of N. L. Johnson, 
including the money collected by Mrs. Whipple, $3.40. 

Miss Oakes has received from the town $25 for her services 
the past year. There is now due Mrs. Whipple $25 for her 
services. 

The trustees recommend the appropriation of at least $50 
for hooks, and $50 for the care of the library for the current 
year.

REPORT OF THE 

School Committee- of Dana. 



To the Citizens of Dana: — In presenting our report of 
the schools for the year !894-'95, we feel we can justly say that 
never before since our acquaintance with tin- schools have they 
appeared in any better condition than al the close of the past 
school year. We have, considering the means al our command, 
endeavored to secure the services of the best teachers. All the 
schools in town commenced the year's work with their former 
teachers, 1 >u t at the close of the spring term both teachers at 
the centra] part of the town expressed a desire to resign, wish- 
ing to engage in a larger and more remunerative field of labor. 
It became necessary, therefore, to secure new teachers for 
these schools, and at the close of the fall term it was deemed 
best by some of the committee to make another change, thus 
giving the Central Grammar school three different teachers. 
We feel that this school has not lost by the several chai 
yet it is the opinion of the writer that too many changes are 
detrimental to a school. 

The other schools continued their work through the ye:ir 
with their former teachers and their usual success, which was 
quite satisfactory to both parents and committee. We should 
have been glad to have made the terms of all schools longer, 

had we known the amount of the Massachusetts School Fund. 
Information regarding the amount came too late for u^ to act.

Fourth Annual Report 



-OF THE — 



Trustees of the Town Library. 



The trustees beg leave to report that, daring the last year, 
there have been added to the library, hooks as follow-, to wit : 
Presented by Mrs. I. H. Johnson, three volumes; by Susan W. 
Farwell, fourteen volumes; received from the state (books of 
reference), thirteen volumes; purchased with the town's appro- 
priation, ninety-nine volumes. Total addition, 12'.'; number 
reported one year ago, 423; total number of books. 552. Mr. 
James M. stone, of Boston, a former resident of this town, 
has presented to the library two valuable ornamental framed 



engravings. 



since our last report, about one year ago, seventeen cards 

have been delivered from the room at North Dana, and twelve 
from the room at Dana, to an equal number of new patron-. 

which, added to those previously taken out, make a total of 282 
cards issued to as many different persons. 

There have been taken from the room at North Dana during 

the year, 490 volumes; from thai at Dana. 130 volumes; 
whole number circulated during the year, 920 volumes. Pines 

collected from delinquents at North Dana, 12.29; Collected at 
Dana. |1.88. 

The town has paid Bliss Oakes and Mrs. Whipple $25 each 
for their services. There is in the hands of Bliss Oakes $4>62 ; 
in the liands of N. L. Johnson, including thai collected by Bft 
Whipple, $1 1.28. Books src Don in process of binding, which 
will about consume it all. 



40 

The town has dealt quite liberally with the library under the 
circumstances. One hundred dollars was appropriated last 
year for the purchase of books, and fifty dollars for their care. 
This liberality has been appreciated, and the outlay is believed 
to be reasonable and profitable, and the trustees recommend 
like appropriations for the current year.

REPORT OF THE 

School Committee of Dana. 



During the past year the same general policy toward the 
public schools has been pursued ; quality of instruction, rather 
than quantity, has been sought. We have endeavored to make 
the schools worthy of patronage and approval, but what we 
consider necessary for best results is a school superintendent, 
whose duty it shall be to devote his time to the good of the 
schools, and we would emphasize this fact. 

The town has maintained the schools for a period of thirty- 
six weeks. The Center Grammar school was subjected to 
changes each term. The spring term was taught by Miss 
.Martha Hall. At the close of the term it was thought best to 
unite the Grammar and Primary schools, with .Miss Cora L. 
Beard as teacher. Owing to so much dissatisfaction, the two 
schools wri»' resumed again, although your committee thought 
it wiser to have the Bchools united) For the winter term, Miss 
Alice Brown was instructor. This school has been conducted 
successfully. The Primary Bchool was taught by Miss Cora L. 
Heard, who has had charge of this school for several terms, and 
the fact of her retention bo long is proof of the satisfactory 
eli:i racter of her work . 

The Plain school bas been taught the entire year by Miss 
M . Kit /.pat lick , making a good degree of progress. North 
Village Grammar school bas been taughl the entire year by Miss 
Lizzie A. Kelly, ^iio bas done a next faithful work, which Is 
justly appreciated by patrons and scholars. An advanced course 
of study bas been placed in thi^ school for all pupils desiring 
to pursue their studies further. Five availed themselves of this 
opportunity al I be beg inning i >i I \\<- fall term. 



42 

North Village Primary school, spring term, taught by Miss 
Bessie M. Fales, was satisfactory to everyone. The fall and 
winter terms were taught by Miss Grace Powers with a fail- 
degree of progress. The class which was graduated from the 
Grammar schools at the close of the spring term passed an ex- 
amination much like that of the previous year, but the standard 
has been raised so that in the future the graduates will be pre- 
pared to enter creditably any High School. This may result in 
adding a year's work for the present advanced class so that 
there will be no graduating class this year, but will also result 
in more thorough fitting. Your committee believes that the 
two schools ought to hold the scholars until they reach the high 
school limit. 

There are nine pupils attending schools in other towns, one 
at Winchendon and eight at New Salem, whose tuitions are paid 
by the town, to be reimbursed bv the state.

AUDITOR'S REPORT. 

I have this day examined the accounts of the selectmen, 
and those of the treasurer, and find the foregoing statement 
correct, 

F. D. STEVENS. 

Auditor, 



REPORT OF THE 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



\\ • • i s id to reporl thai there have been fewer changes 
in teachers during the pa r, a result which we believe 

be desirable. Sue teachers Bhould be retained when< 

<1 your committ( ng upon this principle, has 

M I U ard and Kelly for the purpose 

oing them when offered more elsewhere. Despite this 

«•]•, the treasury at the i year is about 

ity-five dollars in adva the opening of last year, 

i i □ if the winter term shall be completed to twelve weeks. 

The village primary school was 'dosed for two weeks on 

iii:t of the sickness i f the teacher, and the center schools 

the HH--I '. A.t this writing il

had she been willing. They secured Mr. Herbert Glazier 
for the winter term, who, though without experience, has the 
characteristics of a successful teacher, and has proven satisfac- 
factory. 

It is enough for the village schools to say that they have, 
during the year, been under care of our tried and popular 
teachers, Miss Kelly and Miss Cora Beard. At the beginning 
of the year Miss Beard desired to be transferred from the 
center to the village primary school, much to the regret of the 
patrons of the center school, and the board accepted her judg- 
ment and honored her wishes. She believed that she had 
been there so long, a change was advisable. 

We believe that, on the whole, the year has been a pros- 
perous one in our schools. The average attendance for the 
year is as follows : 

Center schools, 33£ 

Plain school, 8£ 

Village schools, 53 

Total. 95 

The expense per scholar from the school fund is as follo\v>: 

Center schools, $17 80 

Plain school, 28 53 

Village schools, 14 88 

A saving of expense and, in the judgment of the board, 
better results for the pupils could be secured by conveying the 
scholars from the plain district to the village schools. This 
plan is obtaining in other towns, and the cause is not a saving 
of expense, but the welfare of the pupils. We believe this 
ought to be done. 

One change during the past year is the introduction of a 
set of supplementary readers hi all the schools and grades, 
which give not only drill in reading, but also valuable instruc- 



47 

tion in various branchea A set of maps was also secured at 
a vcrv reasonable price. 

No class completed the course during the year in conse- 
quence oi a change which seems better fitting for high schools. 
We believe that, since we can have no high school at present, 
our grammar schools ought to do the best possible work for 
our pupils. The class soon to be graduated will be able to 
enter any high school with credit. 

One fact tlit l><>ard (loin - fco cull special attention to. and 
that is the record of absences, which we believe to he unwar- 
ranted in some cases. The law is explicit, and the board is 
held responsible for Its enactment; yet some parents, we are 
sure, keep their children at home when the act is not justi- 
fied. The board shrinks from causing parents trouble and 
expense, and we would urge all parents to prevent the necessity 
by keeping their children in school. The law says, "Even 
child, between seven and fourteen years of age, shall attend 
sojiK- public day school in the town or city in which he resides 
during the entire time the public daj schools arc in session, 
and every person having under his control a child a- described 
in this section shall cause such child to attend school as re- 
quired in tin- section," and "anj person having under his 

control ;i child between seven and fourteen years of age who 

nch child to attend school as required by section 

eleven, just quoted, M of this act, upon complaint by a school 

ace officer, and conviction there >f, shall forfeit and pai 

a fine of not more than twenty dollars. Any person who 

nringly induces, or attempt- t<> induce, anj child to absent 

elf unlawfully from school, or knowingly employs or har 

w bile school is in • anj child ab lent unlaw fullj 

from school, shall forfi i m d imm a line of not more than tit't\ 

dollai 



48 

These laws are framed to protect children in their rights to 
an education, and the school board is under obligation to see 
that they are enforced. We ask all parents to assist us. 

"We believe that it is for the interest of our pupils to provide 
for instruction in vocal music, by a competent teacher, and 
recommend that the town either appropriate a sum specially 
for the purpose, or authorize the board to u>e a certain portion 
of the school fund for the purpose. This is the only oppor- 
tunity the children of to-day have of securing such instruction, 
and it should bo carefully attended to.

EEPORT OF THE 

Trustees of the Town Library. 



The subscribers beg leave to submit to the town their sixth 
annual report of the condition of the public library. There 
have been added during the year the following books : 
Nine volumes from the secretary of state. . 
Two volumes were presented by Col. T. S. Johnson. 

Eighty-five volumes have been purchased with the money 
appropriated by the town last March, making 9G vol- 
umes. These, added to the number reported last year, 
make the whole number of volumes in the library "(Wi. 
Since our last report 21 new cards have been delivered 
from the library room at North Dana, and 13 from that at 
Dana. These, added to those previously taken out, make the 
total number of cards 2'.)*2 held by the same number of read- 
ers ; 530 volumes have been taken from the room at North 
Dana, and 511 volumes and 35 magazines from that at Dana; 
1041 bound books have been circulated during the year. 
Fines amounting to 84.38 have been collected from delin- 
quents. There is in the hands of Miss Grace Oaks, librarian, 
$4.07; in the hands of X. L. Johnson, |3.23. 

The town one year ago appropriated for books S100, 
which, with the above exceptions, has been so used. The 
town has also paid $50 for the care of the library at the two 
places, and we urgently recommend that, at least, a- large a 
sum be appropriated for the current year. 

It is clearly apparent that more than one-third, and proba- 
bly at least one-half of the inhabitants of the town read 
these books, and it gives us pleasure to be able to report that 
the library is growing in favor witJi the people, a large propor- 
tion of whom have no vote in town affairs. 
Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



Since the commencement of the school year very little 
change has occurred in the teaching force of the town. The 
town has maintained the schools for a period of thirty-six 
week.-. The center grammar school was taught the first term 
by Miss Ethel Thompson, and the primary school by Miss 
Fannie Doane. At the beginning <>f the fall term, by reques^ 
a school was opened at District No. 1, and one school W8S 
oloeedat the center. Miss Thompson lias charge of the center 

school, and hftfl proved herself worthy of the confidence ini- 
d in her. Herbert Glazier has charge 6f the south SChooL 
This school has done good work. The Plain school was under 
the eure of Mr. Glazier during th<- spring term, and Miss Alice 
Wood the fall and winter terms. The Tillage BChoolfl haw 

taught by M KeHy and Beard, and have done ex- 

<•* 1 l*-ii t work. 

During the past year new histories hare been bofighl t r 
the higher grades, *lso new readers for all grades. We believe 
there have been fewer abeencee kbit year khan in the paal 

iknoes in the only exenae for absence from schooL The 
schools are sapported by the town and state, and the govern- 

• I demands th<- attendance of the children The work to 

be done in Hchool is Oarefnlly planm-d .lay 1»\ < 1:l \ and DO rhild 

• nt from i recitation without losing something which 
crt make up. At the town meeting In march, 1898, the 



48 

school board was authorized to use a certain portion of the 
school fund for music, and in April music was taken up in the 
schools of Dana as a regular study in all grades. The Normal 
Music Course was adopted. Miss Abbie Thompson has had 
charge of this work.

EEPOKT OF THE 

Trustees of the Town Library. 



The undersigned respectfully submit to the town their 
seventh annual report of the condition of the town public 
library. There have been added during the year the following 
volumes, to wit : 

Presented by Cambridge Woman's Temperance Union, 1 vol. 
Presented by Secretary of State, Public Documents and 

books of reference, 14 
Presented by Sarah D. Robinson, of Kansas, 1 

Presented by Austin F. Adams, Esq., 1 

Presented by city of Chelsea, 1 

Purchased with the town appropriation, 5s 

Total additions, 76 

These added to those last reported, make the whole num- 
ber of bound volumes in the library 842 

Since making our last annual report 51 cards have been 
taken from the library room at North Dana, and 16 from that 
at Dana ; these, with those previously taken, make the whole 
number of cards held by the same number of persons 359 ; 4(51 
volumes have been taken from the room at Dana, and 657 from 
that at North Dana ; 1118 bound volumes have been circulated 
in town during the year. Fines collected from delinquents 



51 

amount to $1.78; -S2.52 has been expended for stationery, 
postage, etc The town, last spring, appropriated for replen- 
ishing the library with books, $100, and for earing for it at 
both places, $50. There is now in the hands of Miss Grace 
Oakes, librarian, at North Dana, $2.90; in the hands of N. L. 
Johnson, $41.65. The balance will probably be invested in 
books before this report is in print. It is hoped that, at least, 
as much will be appropriated by the town for the library, for 
the current year, ae was voted for that purpose last year. 

In each succeeding year a constant increase of readers of 
these library books has been manifested. This is especially 
apparent with the younger portion of the community. This 
encouraging fad should stimulate all who desire the moral 
and intellectual improvement of this community to increased 
efforts to promote and extend its efficiency.

Report of the School Committee. 



The Scho >l Committee takes pleasure in reporting all the schools oj 
the town in excellent condition, believing they have not fallen below 
the high standard of the past, and this, in face of the fact that it has 
been nee sssary to engage new teachers, with one exception. The South 
School has progressed under the instruction of Mr. Herbert Glazier. 
Miss Alice Stevens has taught the Plain school with good results. Miss 
Ethel Thompson continued in charge <>f the Center Bchoo] during the 
spring, hut in the fall il was necessary to secure a new teacher, and 
Mi— Cindie Dalton was engaged. Commendable progress has been 
made under her direction. During the Bpring term Misses Kelly and 
Beard c uitinued a- teachers in the places they so acceptably tilled for a 
number "i years, but declined t<> serve longer, much to the regret of the 
committee. Miss Hattie Canfield was then engaged as teacher of the 
Village Grammar school, and Miss Fannie Gould of the Primary depart- 
ment. The methods of instruction used by both the-'' teachers are of 
the kind approved b the modern educators and corresponding results 
have accrued. The study of vocal music has been kept up during the 
.r. under the • •tli'i<':it direction <>t Mi— Abbie Thompson. 

Two new sets of charts for use in teaching arithmetic have been in- 
troduced during the j ear. 

One thing is to be regretted, the amount <»t absence on the part of 
pupils. Much "i" Lt, I bj sickness, has been unavoidable; 

e "f it could have been avoided, did parents bnt realize the L r rr;it ne- 
-itv, for regularity in attendance, irregularity tends to demoralise 

the school ;nid I" ii:< r«';i-,c tin- work of ili<- teacher .'it the BSII16 time that 

it losgon« the efficiency of thai work. Absence i-- neceasarih accora

panied by loss to the child. Not infrequently he falls behind his mates 
and becomes too discouraged to do good work, and he drops out of the 
school at the earliest opportunity. Tardiness, also, so much to be re- 
gretted, the habit of promptitude being one which it is very desirable to 
form in youth. 

A further snggestion is that valuable aid would accrue to both 
teachers and pupils, if parents and guardians would show their interest 
by visiting the schools oftener.

The undersigned beg leave to submit to the town their eighth annual 
report of the condition of the Public Library. The following additions 
have been made during the last year, to wit : 
Presented by Franklin 1. Johnson 
Keceived from the Secretary of State 
Purchased with the town appropriation 

Total additio 

Number reported one year ago 



Total number of bound books in tin- Library 
During the year 29 cards have been delivered to patrons from the 
room at North Dana, and 10 from the room at Dana. These added to 
those previously reported make 393 cards held by an equal number of 

patrons. 

There have been taken from the room at North Dana during the 
year, 881 volumes. From the room at I), na 575 mes. l U56 bound 

books have been placed in the hands of r< iders. More than 300 more 
books have been taken from the librarj than were taken last year. 
Fines have been collected from delinqu 'ting to $3.27. $102.- 

80 have been expended for books and oth< l* expenses. There 

is in the hands of N. L. Johnsoi and Mi - ivhich it is ex- 

pected will be invested in books within a few days. It is hope.; that 
the town will appropriate as much for the library tli" present year as 
was voted last soring. It will be seen from the above thai there is a 
large inci ease in the number of books circulated in town. It is also 
noticeable that a large majority of the books inquired ■ works >f 

fiction, which are easily read, and require little or no mental effort to 
digest, and leave on the mind little, it any thing of value. 

There are many valuable volumes in the library, such as History, 
Biography, Science, Travels, etc., which are comparatively seldom 
called tor. It is to be regretted that books of a more substantial and 
improving character are uot sought, and it is confidently hoped that a 
taste for that kind of literature will be more generally cultivated. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF THE 

SCHOOL COM MIT EE. 



The school committee is glad to report a Buocessfoj school 
year. The schools have been is the hands of faithful teachers, 
and corresponding good results have followed. During the 
spring term 1 1 1 * • teachers continued in their respective pla 
as stated in the report of a year ago. At the opening of the 
fall term a number of ch were necessitated by the loss I 

the village teachers, Miss Battie < anfield and Bliss Fannie 
Gould. Mr. Herbert Glazer was transferred from the South 
school to the Village ( l-rammar school, and Miss Cindie Da 
from the Center bo the Village Primary school. Mr. Herman 
Knight was engaged fco teach a1 the Center, and Miss Lilla 
Walker at the South school. M as Alice Stevens has c 
tinned as teacher of the Plain schooL At the time of the 
Christmas vacation, Mr. Glazier resigning, Mr. Knight was 
placed in charge o\' the Grammar school, and M — Sad e Ward 
was engaged to teach the school at the Center. Miss A.bbie 
Thompson has done efficient work during the year as ins tru 
in vocal music. 

A number of new text books have been introduced in * 
eral of the grades, Prince's arithmetics for primary grades, 
Mowry's History and Cyr's readers. A number table was also 
purchased for use at the Center school. 

Necessary repairs have been made upon some of the school 
buildings; the South school lias been painted and repaired 



53 

inside; the upper Village schoolroom has been papered; half 
of the roof has been shingled, and the fence painted. 

The committee wishes to call the attention of parents and 
guardians to the many requests made by pupils to be excused 
before the regular time for dismissal. Some of these cases are 
unnecessary. They are always to be deplored, because they 
result in loss to the pupil.

REPORT OF THE 

Superintendent of Schools. 



T<) tlm School Committee of Dana : 

I have the honor to submit the following report of the 
condition, work and needs of the schools for the year ending 
February 1, 1903. 

This being my first year in Dana lias necessarily been 
devoted to the general management of the schools, and to a 
study of the needs and conditions. Yet it seemed advisable 
that some important changes be made at the beginning of the 
fall term. The most important of these was mentioned in the 
last annual report of your committee, — the closing i >f the Plain 
school and the opening t) \ ;l primary school at Dana Centre. 
It was imperative that the school at the Centre he graded. 
Forty 2>upils in all grades cannot do really successful work in 
one room. As there were only eight pupils at the Plain school 
they could be carried to the Centre, and save quite a sum of 
money to the town, as the cost of transportation is less than 
the cost of maintaining a school. Many strong arguments 
have been advanced on both sides of the question of transpor- 
tation, but these amount to little unless applied to a case in 
hand. A general change has been effected in the methods of 
primary instruction and improved methods introduced through- 
out the course. Quietly have these changes been made, and 
with the hearty co-operation of the committee, teachers, and 
people. Permit me to express my appreciation of the support 
that has enabled me to attain whatever measure of success has 
rewarded my endeavors. 



53 

All our schools arc graded schools. The three lower grades 
are in the primary rooms, where all the work is conducted to 
suit the age and experience of the child, and excellent results 
are manifest. The intermediate and grammar grades are up- 
stairs. In some r this is an advantage, as the you] 
pupils learn much unconsciously from the work of the older 
ones — the glory of the ungra led school. 

TEACHERS 1 MEETINGS. 

Several teachers etings have been held, ami a plan of 
the work in th< ■•..-. ibjects and grades lias been out- 
lined for the t. s, and means and methods for carrying it 

. d. Besides these, in November the 

ere of the entire district met at Millington for a talk on 

first grade Reading, by Mr. J. S. Cooley of Worcester, and in 

j of t he stale B 
v » i - 1 1 1 I tana. Both i >f these i 
i)iL very i ing and helpful. 

COURSE OF STUB )' 

One of the »f our schools is a new course oi 
study, i '• ''-lit has this matter under considera- 
tion, and e e thi ork in form bo i hat it m&} be 
,n the uai the teachers at the opening ol the 

:n. 

While I do not !>• i in too much interference with the 
• sis need at all tunes of an estab- 

imiit in order t bal all the pupils maj 
the benefit i • |ual amount of instruction \ 

o an ed i uai the work ol b child at anj 
time may i • i unit ; t bu ev( in the lov i 

in tin- firsi tchoo] Life, the child meetH witb all the 



54 

fundamental processes of arithmetic, — including fractions, — 
besides being taught to read, and learning something of 
language and geography. 

Year by year the course goes on expanding those princi- 
ples and broadening the knowledge which the child has thus 
gained. With the adoption of a course of study, re-grading 
will be effected with as little inconvenience to the pupils as 
possible. 

VISITING DAYS. 

As is customary, one day each term has been allowed the 
teachers for visiting and observing the work of other schools. 
I believe this to be productive of good results. The following 
regulations govern the use of the day : 

Teachers are required to visit one day cadi term. 

The day for visiting and the work to be visited is arrai 
by the superintendent. 

A report of each visit, with remarks upon strong and weak 
points of the school visited is made at the next teacl 
meeting. 

MUSIC. DBA WING, ETC. 

Under the excellent instruction of Miss Amsden, good 
work has been accomplished in this department, and the 
results merit the continuance of the work. For information 
of the work done, I refer you to the report of the instructor 
of music. 

Realizing the importance and educational value of drawing, 
both in the training of eye and hand and in the development 
of thought and expression, I have asked the teachers to give 
some time each week to this department. Considering the 
amount of time that it was possible to devote to it, I think 
very good work has been done. I hope we may be able to 
give this subject more time in future. 



55 

Some work has been 'lone with reed and raffia. This is in 
the nature of an experiment, and the results are certainly 
encouraging. I believe manual training will become more and 
more a recognized part of the work of the schools. 

ATTENDANCE, 

attendance for this school year has been far from sat- 
tory. EducatioE ia the child's right. Since he cannot 
enforce, the --Tate assumes that duty. The laws in regard to 
attendance should he enforced, and truant officers should un- 
derstas it is their duty to carry them out, and thai they 

will be supported in their efforts. 

BUILDINGS. 

The building at the Centre is in good repair, well suited 
and i for the work of the schools. At North Dana 

dtable for the use of the schools, nor is the 
iund. A lot for school pnrp 
obtained where there would be ample playground, 
an-! a building should be erected that would accommodate 
you] needs. Such an investment is sound busi

>' // j,i /■/ nteude nt oj Schools, 



Mr. .1'/"///n, n u peri a/ 1'iiiJi' 1,1 of Schoola : 

Deah Sir: — The progress made in vocal music during the 
pasi year has been quit< re is mani- 

fested a spiril of earn - and painstaking, both by teachers 

and pupils, which, if continued, will bring i 

My aim is to trail] the children to become, a- tar as pos- 
sible, self reliant. This is bein - intly 
requiring Individual singing, which many of the children thor- 
oughly enjoy, and in which the resi are deeply inter 

I have used the "Individual Sighl Si with 

our other studies during the year, and I am glad t<> Bay that 
much of the progress in sighl singing is due t<> this most im- 
portant individual singing. In this each child IS put upon his 
own resources. He wishes to do as well as possible, and, as a 

natural consequence, he becomes stronger in his ability to r< ad 

music. 

Careful work is being done in every grade, and all are 
striving for good tone quality and correctness of pitch. There 
is much room for improvement in these respects, hut if the 

same enthusiastic spirit continues, good results must follow. 



57 

I visited the schools iu the cities of Springfield and West- 
field, and was glad to see that their work is much the same as 
ours, and I am sure that the music of Dana schools would 
compare favorably, if placed side by side with that of t hot- 
schools. 

For the earnest support of all during the year I am most 
grateful 

S. MAUDE AMSDEN, 

Supervisor of m usic.
